I did it the second way, with the rotor pointing at 1, and the wire on the cap post pointing at 1, i am non HEI points style
The drawing of the first distributor is of an early model points style distributor and the 2nd drawing is of the HEI distributor. Like was said before as long as the rotor is pointing to #1 spark plug wire and the wires are clockwise 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 it is fine.
